"this once was a great program"
when it was ironically actually free to use, and the fee was a "shareware" price without nag screens.
The more it costs to buy the worse the program seems to get - go figure?
It charges for MP3 conversions when there are several FREE 100% options downloadable online.
The GUI (user interface) is COUNTER-intuitive, and thus confusing. If he'd just follow the usual expectations for a basic GUI it would far more useful.
Help with the program is pathetic. The developer assumes everyone is eager to sift through pages and pages of "help text" and "forums" to find the answer to his problem.
The problem is while many people may indeed have the same problem, most people do not speak the jargon and can describe identical things completely differently - SOOOOO having to search through the forums is a huge time taking endeavor. Then the basic help info sucks.
The guy needs to get someone who knows how to "talk to people" to handle this stuff. It's pretty clear he is a classic computer person who finds it impossible to talk to anyone below his level of expertise, and thinks anyone who is not on his level is just lazy or not trying hard enough.
That's too bad, considering that when it first came out it was great, but now alternatives have caught up, and there is far less reason for anyone experiencing more than a few minutes of frustration to put up with it let alone buy it.
